Include a main map (or custom) thumbnail in ArcGIS Pro's Recent Projects list. 

  • Offer the choice of viewing Recent Projects by:
    • simple list,
    • detailed list (with metadata), or
    • thumbnails mosaic  
  • Option to reorder
    • alphabetically,
    • by date, or
    • by tag (from the metadata).

I'd like more ways to keep Maps and Layouts within projects sorted and organized as well. 

I understand adding the date to the Catalog view and Pane is difficult/impossible at least compared to ArcMap, but we really do need more ways to help us track the maps and layouts we have used/edited/viewed recently - and I like the idea about sorting by tag from the metadata too.  (In my world almost no one uses metadata - this would be a really valid reason to change that - at least the tags part).

This Idea has been implemented in ArcGIS Pro 3.1. Please see the What's New documentation for more new features in Pro 3.1.

The Ideas in ArcGIS Pro 3.1 blog will be wrapped up soon, highlighting all Ideas implemented in this release, including this one. Once complete, I will add the link to this comment.
